It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new.

A Blessing for All

May we open to deeper understandings of what healing can mean for us.
May we awaken each day to discover small blessings.
May we continue to choose gratitude for all the goodness that flows through our lives despite the disruptions in our neurons that don't always flow according to plan.

We will be leaving for PA in just a few moments. In the midst of packing I stopped to send various Rosh Hashanah greetings to friends. I wrote a special blessing for two friends who also happen to have MS and sent it to them. And then I thought. No. This is for every one. We are all struggling with something. We all experience disruptions in our "flow". Take out the word "neurons". What disruptions cause you to feel out of "flow", distracted, distraught, disconnected from the simplest blessings that fill and form the goodness of your life?

gentle steps,


  1. Thank you so much for this beautiful blessing.

    Safe journey,

  2. It’s been awhile. Hope you are feeling well and your world is filled with love and blessings. Take sweet care of yourself...cynthia

  3. L'Shana Tova, dear friend. May the coming year bring lots of health, happiness and love for you and your beautiful family. The way in which you have shared your journey has been an absolute inspiration to me and I look forward to learning more from you.

    To a sweet New year, dear one.

    Love always,

  4. Your message comes just at the right moment. Have a peaceful trip, Laura.

  5. I appreciate what you wrote.

    I celebrate with you in your new Jewish year.

  6. Laura, Have a beautiful holiday with your family. Your words always fill me with gentle grace. I enjoy our "visits" even when the computer fairies play havoc with my commenting skills.

  7. Have a wonderful holiday, Laura!

    Safe travels too and thank you for being you.

    With love and blessings,

  8. Laura,
    I am so happy to know that are traveling to be with family for such blessed days. May goodness fill your days.

    Distractions? For me it would be family crisis? Like this week, sudden notice that daughter's grants did not all come in for college. What to do? I spin for a bit, then catch myself, and remember how things always work out, always! Life is good, even when it is challenging.

    And so glad you are going to be taking my Buddha Chick online course. You will be a beautiful, soulful addition to it!

    (alias Buddha Chick - wink!)

  9. Laura, a beautiful post. Safe travel wishes go out to you and your family. To let you know "new friend" you bless my heart.
    Stay well on this trip.

  10. Traveling mercies. Thank you for the gift of these words for my day.

  11. such a lovely blessing,
    thank you
    may your life be blessed, fully~

  12. "May we continue to choose gratitude ..." Such a lovely prayer, Laura. I can't think of any disruptions in my life currently. In fact, the other day, I was thinking that I'm very happy that there is no discord or unhappiness in my life at this time. Just peace and goodness ... and good people like you. (Glad to hear you're taking the Buddha Chick course! I'm working the budget to see if I can, too!)

  13. Laura,
    I woke up this morning feeling so grateful for the care and support of a few special people and you are one of those. Please know I am out here appreciating your writing, spirit, heart.

    With love and gratitude,


  14. I hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip

    peace, love and harmony be yours

  15. Godspeed for your travels on the road and as you head into a new year.

    Disruptions for me right now are a sick cat and no word for weeks from a son who lives far away. Lack of communication sets me back, and there is no way to make someone talk/share their life. C'est la vie.

    Remember to look for the wonder in life....

  16. Fear, fear, fear. Did I say fear? I am learning to just allow, and it's amazing how the disruptions can actually be small ripples instead of large waves when I surrender.

    Thank you for the blessings. May you also flow around any damm to your heart.

  17. Beautiful blessings to you! Peace, Nicki
